Durham, a proud and historic city with a unique sense of identity. Guaranteeing you a warm welcome, Durham fuses its own past and cultural heritage with the modern expectations of visitors to create a city that is unique and different but maintains a familiarity to its visitors.

Whitby is a town that offers you something a little bit different to the ‘typical’ coastal resort! Here, you can explore ornate cobbled paths, locally owned shops and quirky cafes, giving the town a unique, welcoming atmosphere. One of the most iconic parts of this lovely town is the famous gothic abbey, said to have inspired Bram Stoker’s Dracula. Founded in 657, Whitby Abbey is over 2,000 years old and has so many fascinating stories for you to discover!

Durham

Durham

Durham, a beautiful historic city in the North East of England, dating back to the Roman times.

Known for its superb architecture, vibrant culture and rich history, Durham is a popular holiday destination with many fantastic attractions. 

Discover Durham Cathedral, one of the most impressive cathedrals in the world, with its 1,000-year history and stunning collections of manuscripts, embroideries, and other historic objects. It’s also a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site with beautiful Norman architecture and spectacular stained-glass windows.

Explore other iconic landmarks in the city, such as the 11th century Durham Castle and the medieval Durham City Walls. These fascinating attractions provide a unique insight into the history of the city, offering a glimpse into the lives of people who once lived there. Take a stroll around the quaint cobbled streets, exploring the shops, museums and art galleries, before relaxing with a drink in a cosy pub.

The city is known for its thriving arts scene, with several cultural festivals taking place throughout the year. Durham is a wonderful destination for a coach holiday, whether you’re interested in history, the arts, or you’re looking for a relaxing break away in an attractive city.

The lovely beach and harbour are also a favourite spot amongst locals and tourists alike, with boat trips available to see the North Yorkshire coast from a new perspective. This is also one of the few places in the UK where you can see the sun both rise and set over the ocean, making the pier perfect for an evening walk! There’s lots to do in the town itself too, such as the Captain Cook Memorial Museum, Whitby Brewery and Whitby Jet Museum. If you’re a fan of walking then you’ll be spoilt for choice, with many routes in and around Whitby, exploring cliffs, woods, country lanes and beaches.
